What previously used to be a fully functional mode of transportation during the erstwhile years is now a scenic railroad ride along the Wakatipu district on 14 kms of preserved tracks! The Kingston Flyer is a vintage train that has now been converted as a tourist attraction. Experience what it would be like to travel in the 80’s- whole compartments for your family, broad leather seats, door services with a wine and dine option as the Wakatipu district whizzes by, this vintage train ride is definitely one of the things you must do if you’re seeking a heritage tour in New Zealand.

  • The Flyer used to be the pride of Kingston, but now it rots in the rain. The steam train was the symbol of the small town on the southern tip of Lake Wakatipu, where fog creeps from the surrounding mountains and descends like smoke, hanging above a long, stony beach. While the train slides further into decay, expansion plans for the community are enormous. Huge demand for housing in Queenstown, which is quickly becoming hemmed in by its geography, is putting responsibility on towns such as Kingston to ease the pressure. Its 200 houses may soon become 1100, based on a private, billion dollar development consented behind the township, which would all but swallow the town.

  • Flyer is locked in a compound. Visit for the sights and surrounds.

  • I would love to see the Kingston flyer fly again

  • The Flyer is closed and unfortunately is rusting away while the current owner tries to sell it. It was a marvelous attraction when it was running. Rumors say it will be moved somewhere else if it is bought. or maybe it will stay in Kingston. Fate is currently unknown, you can see the train in the yard and both engines if you walk down the tracks. The Station building is closed permanently at the time of this review. (Feb 8 2015)
